The maid who runs into Kahu soon makes eye contact with the butler. Only then did the maid seem to come to her senses.
Not only Kahu, but the strange power of the moonlight also seemed to have bewitched the maid.
Charlize was just cleaning her sword, but she had the charm to suck people up.
The maid stood up on the stairs carefully. The butler greeted Kahu and stepped back.
“I hope you have a peaceful time, Master.”
The maid also bowed to Kahu and quickly moved away from him.
Charlize slowly raised her head. Kahu swallowed his saliva without realizing it.
Charlize’s eyes reach Kahu.
“Oh, you’re here.”
Her unique gentle way of speaking calmed Kahu down.
Kahu approached Charlize.
The handkerchief held by Charlize is fancy.
The long silver sword shined more and more sharply. A sword with traces left from cutting a golem. Charlize lowered his eyelids and wiped all the way to the handle.
It’s common for a knight to treat a sword preciously.
It’s rare to wipe a sword with such care. Kahu carefully stood down the stairs.
Charlize’s figure was as elegant as the touch of a musician playing the harp.
“Why are you wiping the sword?”
“Oh this kid, because she did a great job today, too.”
Charlize, who answered strangely, lifted the sword and reflected it in the moonlight. It glowed brightly.
Kahu paid attention to Charlize’s choice of words. Because he usually doesn’t say that with a sword.
Captured by that question, he couldn’t ask questions about the smell of blood from Charlize’s sword.
Charlize put her sword in the sheath.
“Would you like to sit down?”
When Charlize suggested it, Kahu went up and sat next to her.
There are different trails and benches in the garden, but the stairs he has been sitting on for the first time weren’t bad.
No, it’s a moonlit night. Looking up at the night sky with Charlize was a little unrealistic. His heart beats heavily.
“The sky that we see from here. It’s as close as the stars will fall soon.”
Said Charlize. Kahu nodded his head.
Come to think of it. Charlize. The reason why she accepted Kahu’s invitation. It was to probe him.
Kahu, who had been quiet, started talking first.
“Unfortunately, not long ago there was an accident in which the successor of Count Hart fell and died.”
Charlize almost affirmed to Kahu who interrogated her casually. Soon, she found out that it was before the return.
Since Charlize’s return, not only history has been distorted, but the fate of most nobles has changed.
The same goes for Count Hart’s successor. Even if he died unfortunately before her return. He didn’t die this time.
Charlize asked back, lowering her eyes.
“Did something like that happen to Count Hart?”
Is it a test, or is it a confusion that comes from a mixture of memories before and after the return?
Charlize was nervous, but her outward expression was languorous. Kahu opened his eyes wide for a moment as if he was confounded. He soon bowed his head.
“Ah, I must have been mistaken for a while… Sometimes this happens. I’m sorry.”
At the same time, he looked up and looked at Charlize’s complexion, making him doubt whether he really didn’t mean it.
But Charlize smiled softly.
“It’s nothing, that could happen.”
Charlize was half-doubted, but yeah, she told him that could happen.
But one thing was certain.
‘Kahu has returned.’
Charlize was a little confused. Her own return. She prayed to God directly on a piece of Ehyrit in her body.
Let’s say I pulled a miracle. But what about Kahu?
‘It’s his fate to get involved.’
Suddenly, the word that passed through her mind caught Charlize.
It’s not good to be more emotional than necessary. Charlize shook her head to shake off her strange feeling.
Charlize lowered her gaze for a moment. Kahu doesn’t smell like any pieces. He’s just a pure-blooded human.
She looked up and looked at Kahu.
“Then, I’ll ask too, young duke. Why did you stop?”
Before the accession. Kahu had every opportunity to rat on treason.
But he didn’t do that.
As if asking why he chose Dylan, Charlize looked at Kahu. Kahu replied straight after being silent for a moment.
“For me, it’s not His Majesty. It was the grandmaster from the beginning.”
It was a rude answer to Dylan. However, Charlize was speechless.
A green eye as fresh as nature sees Charlize. A dark night. The wind of autumn.
A specimen of a nobleman who has been raised solely as a successor to the family since he was young. The first knight commander who pledged allegiance to the imperial family. But in front of Charlize.
Like wanting to be just a human being. Kahu didn’t make anything up.
Dylan read the letter from Charlize. She wrote that she would sleep overnight at the Duke of Delmon.
‘You’re going to sleep with Kahu?’
Of course, it’s never going to be ‘sleeping’ together. He inadvertently crumpled the letter because of the force in his grip.
Dylan crumpled the paper. Come to think of it, it wasn’t the only one.
‘When Master recommended young lady Remiya to me as a candidate for the Crown Princess.’
As far as he can remember, that’s the only time, not now.
Dylan opened the letter again and read it. He had no dyslexia, but he clearly read the letters, but his mind couldn’t interpret it.
[For the sake of work efficiency, I will spend one night at the Duke of Delmon before return to the palace.
May you always be at peace.
Yours sincerely, Charlize.]
“Efficiency of work.”
Dylan mumbled to himself in a daze.
This is. Work. She said it was part of her work. Dylan told himself, but it didn’t work.
Dylan couldn’t even force Charlize. It’s Charlize’s life, and it’s her authority. Besides, if Dylan hadn’t fed the Emperor a piece of Ehyrit from the beginning. Something like that wouldn’t have happened.
Dietrich was executed in front of everyone, no one could’ve been after the reinstatement of the dethroned emperor.
‘The plan was overturned when the emperor gained half eternal life.’
The reason why Charlize wiped out the remaining forces of the rebellion. After all, it was because of Dylan’s love.
‘But, again, I couldn’t let Master kill the emperor herself.’
After completing her revenge, Charlize loses her motivation for life and collapses. He can never see it.
“…Is this a test?”
Dylan was a genius. Of course, he was smart. He also knows that Charlize is testing Dylan’s feelings recently.
When he couldn’t extend his sword to Charlize, who showed a gap during the battle. Charlize’s eyes were shining strangely.
When he was teaching the piano, he had to improve his self-control to make up for her mistakes.
To Kahu, are you serious?
Unable to say the end, Dylan looked out the window blankly.
The night when the moon rose.
Just imagining Charlize and Kahu together made his head ache.
But Dylan can’t stop Charlize. Even if Charlize and Kahu build up good feelings rationally. He couldn’t bring Charlize home.
‘No, nothing will happen.’
Dylan tried to think rationally. Don’t you know Charlize’s personality? It’s really just an extension of work.
Even though he judged like that. On the other hand, his lungs are boiling hot.
Waiting here like this. That he can do nothing but pray that nothing will happen.
When he became the emperor. Yeah, he didn’t expect the relationship to change. Still, he expected something. At least he never imagined this kind of situation.
He waited to teach Charlize the piano as soon as she came back.
But no matter how long he waits, it’s no use now. Just for tonight. She’ll be with Kahu.
Dylan hurriedly raised a glass of water to calm himself down. But is it because he failed to control his strength?
The glass broke in his grasp. The piece is stuck in the palm of his hand and blood is streaming.
If Master was by his side.
She asked if he was okay, and she must have been worried with her polite and gentle tone. There is no soft glance. It didn’t reach him.
The water trickled down helplessly.
“I don’t have clothes to change.”
“Don’t worry, grandmaster!”
“In case you didn’t know, I prepared a dress for the grandmaster!”
“We’ll bring it soon. Please wait a moment!”
At Charlize’s words, the maids were delighted to go get her clothes.
It was a bright morning before she knew it. The long night’s walk ended after having a few conversations with Kahu.
She slept in a guest night dress yesterday, but today she needed new clothes to change.
She couldn’t prepare clothes because she didn’t think about staying out overnight. However, the maids acted quickly as if they had been waiting for this situation.
Charlize was soon surprised at the colonel’s dress.
‘It really fits me perfectly.’
It was a dress made exactly the size of Charlize. Except it’s too flashy to go to the underworld today.
It was a perfect dress with a beautiful golden design.
“It looks very good on you!”
The intense hospitality remained the same. Charlize ended up laughing. The innocent maids were very cheerful and likable.
Charlize didn’t get make-up. Nevertheless, it is due to the light, clean skin that shines beautifully.
Each of them decided to have a light breakfast, so they settled it in their own bedroom.
The menu was salad and egg tart.
“Young duke, it’s a fresh morning.”
“Did you sleep comfortably?”
“Yes, I feel very good because I slept well.”
Charlize greeted Kahu and praised the maids.
“The maids are very cute.”
“It’s a good thing I think they have served the grandmaster.”
Charlize smiled brightly as if she was in a good mood. Looking at Charlize who he likes, Kahu was also happy.
“By the way, grandmaster. There’s something I couldn’t tell you yesterday.”
“Thank you for saving me from Golem.”
Kahu bowed politely to Charlize. If it weren’t for Charlize at that time, he might have been seriously injured.
Charlize was a lifesaver to him.
Charlize was silent for a moment. When Kahu raised his head, she looked a little strange.
“Of course it was something I had to do.”
“But I’m glad that the young duke said that.”
Charlize, who was in the moonlight last night, was alluring and terrifyingly beautiful. However, Charlize in the morning sun, too. She was pretty with a different feeling from the night.
“Then, shall we go again now?”
Because she had enough rest.
It was time to dig up the underworld. Charlize smiled brightly.
“We have to go to work.”
Kahu agreed with Charlize.
There was a warm atmosphere between Charlize and Kahu for a while.
They smiled at each other and moved on without delay.
Soon they arrived in the underworld.
Charlize stepped in first. Kahu followed her slowly.
